Easy Chicken Piccata
When we are celebrating an evening for two, my husband makes me my favorite dish. A deliciously juicy and flavorful chicken dinner that's a breeze to put together, this Chicken Piccata recipe may just be an instant favorite of yours, too.
This recipe was created in partnership with Cobram Estate Olive Oil.
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
½ cup all-purpose flour
1 extra large egg
½ tbsp water
¾ cup panko breadcrumbs
3 tbsp butter, room temperature
⅓ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, lemon halves reserved
½ cup dry white wine
3 tbsp capers
Sliced lemon, for serving
Chopped fresh parsley leaves, for serving
PRODUCTS TO USE:
Place each chicken breast between 2 sheets of parchment paper or plastic wrap and pound out to 1/4-inch thick. Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
Mix the flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper in a shallow plate. In a second plate, beat the egg and 1/2 tablespoon of water together. Place the panko crumbs on a third plate. Dip each chicken breast first in the flour, shake off the excess, and then dip in the egg and bread crumb mixtures.
Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a Hestan NanoBond 11" Skillet over medium to medium-low heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side, until browned. Once cooked through, set aside while you make the sauce.
For the sauce, heat the Hestan NanoBond 11" Skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter and then add the lemon juice, wine, reserved lemon halves, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Boil over high heat until reduced in half, about 2 minutes. Turn off the heat, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and swirl to combine. Discard the lemon halves and serve 1 chicken breast on each plate. Spoon on the sauce and serve with a slice of lemon, your favorite pasta, and a sprinkling of fresh parsley.
